of the month. that would be the headline except a new problem seems to have come up as kathleen sebelius returned to capitol hill for yet another grilling, this time a security risk to users. breanna keeler is following developments, live at the white house this morning. >> reporter: it was another damaging appearance on the hill for hhs secretary kathleen sebelius. as president obama headed to the lone star state, that's right, but not a coincidence that he was in texas where a republican governor has blocked the expansion of medicaid under the obama care law. >> it is wonderful to see all of you. >> reporter: texas, not exactly friendly territory for obama care. but that's where president obama went to criticize republican opposition to his signature health care reform program. and promised its faulty website will soon be up and running. >> we are working overtime to get this fixed. and the website is already better than it was at the beginning of october. and by the end of this month we anticipate it is going to be working the way it is supposed to. >> reporter: back in the hot seat a
one from joe biden and kathleen sebelius and miss tavenner, the head of the centers for medicare and medicaid. so there have been a lot of apologies. the one that needed to come was the president's politically, at least. on the legislation, an administrative fix is really what they need to get here. democrats, even those with legislation would be happy to have this taken care of administrative administratively. they have done what they needed to do. told constituents we heard you, legislation, take credit for pressuring the president himself to come and do something about it. it was a statement he made in four or five years ago that didn't have to be made, could have been couched. at the time seemed like the right thing to do because memories were long of the clinton's attempt to reform health hurns and people thought they would lose policies. >> jackie you made news, piece addressing administration to cover care for mental health and adick the same way they do medical and physical illnesses. can you give us a sense of the siblgts here, just how important it is. it relates and go

kathleen sebelius, and i think this is an underreported story. saying today hhs has plans to, quote, reinvite people to sign up. what does that translate to? that translates to them sitting on millions of dollars, which they are. there was one report on how much money they're sitting on to try and advertise to get healthy young people into the system. and eric, because they didn't have the political courage to make that penalty more than the premium, they can run all the ads they want with our money which is going to -- really going to bankrupt us. i still don't think they're going to have people sign up. they have doctor shortage, lack of people enrolling, premiums going through the roof because of adverse selection and the employer mandate which is the biggest issue set to drop in ten months. >> bob, the question, i'm sitting there waiting, probably an hour and a half hearing, senators like to talk, they like to hear themselves speak. who made the call to go october 1st knowing very well there was security risks and the website wasn't ready. >> first of all, let me say, i'm sweati
on capitol hill, earlier today, health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius was not sounding very confident. she was saying they're going to have it done by the end of the month but she said they have an aggressive check list to go through, an aggressive time line to meet. sort of putting out this feeling that programs it may not happen in time. the president said in dallas, this is happening in time. the other important thing, and i'll say this very quickly. the president did not go back to clean pup line if you like your plan, you can keep it. he did not try to revise that line as he did the other night. perhaps an indication that they know that clean-up job was not going too well. >> let me ask you this. the hits keep on coming for the health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius. it died down a little bit. it felt like it but now gaining heat again on capitol hill. getting a tough grilling. what exactly happened there? >> well, she was pressed by senators throughout this hearing about the various problems with the website, the veracity of the president's comments when

the site crashed two times this week. kathleen sebelius said the website has cost $174 million so far and more probably to fix it. >>> starting today $5 billion is cut from the food stamp program. that means less grocery money for millions. the cuts will vary by family but this is typically a family of four getting 668 a month would lose about $36. food stamp benefits were raised during the recession and temporary increase to the program and that expires today. in 2007, 26 million people were using snap as they call it, supplemental food benefits and compared that to almost 48 million now. 15% of the american population is using government assistance to help feed their family. $36 a month is going to hurt some people. people who work for food banks are upset about these cuts. others say this was meant to be a temporary measure and that temporary measure is now over. you'll hear more about that. >>> are you -- when you fly, are you going to be irritating with your devices now you're able to use them or a good citizen? >> i'm always a good citizen. >> i'm so glad nobody can chat on thei

, but there is no need to delay the medical insurance enrollment process. that is the message kathleen sebelius took to capitol hill yesterday. she had to do more than defend the law. she had to defend herself. >> your main goal should have been to protect americans to lessen their risk and ensure their safety, but in your zeal to implement this law, nothing would implement you from deterring the changes. you said america should hold you accountable, which is why to do, madam secretary, i repeat my request for you to resign. >> sebelius offered no resignation and fought off the call for a delay to the rollout of obamacare. >> some have asked why not delay implementation of the new law until all of the problems are fixed, and there's a pretty straight forward answer. delaying the affordable care act wouldn't delay people's cancer or diabetes or parkinson's. it didn't delay the need for mental health services or cholesterol screenings or prenatal care. delaying the affordable care act doesn't delay the foreclosure notices for families forced into bankruptcy by unpayable medical bills. >> the troubled
